Nairobi: Reactions Emerge As Raila Re-reads A Bible Verse That Had Been Quoted By Dp Ruto

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga has elicitedd mixed reactions from Kenyans, specifically those who are on social media platforms after making a latest move.

This comes after Raila reread a Bible verse which had been quoted by deputy president Dr William Ruto.

While at PCEA church service in Nanyuki town on Sunday, the former prime minister read Psalms 133 which gives counsel on the importance of unity amongst humans. He began by greeting the congregation that was keenly watching him. Thereafter, he vowed not to bring politics into the church. He noted that he was in agreement with the move by the ACK and Catholic clergy to ban politics in churches. He then read the scripture before concluding the conversation.

Moments later, he shared a live video of his speech at the church in his official Facebook page. His post attracted the attention of netizens who immediately, took to the comments section to express their views.

" 'Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!' - Psalms 133. Happy to fellowship with the congregants at PCEA Nanyuki, Laikipia County. We pray for the health and well-being of all Kenyans and ask God to bless our nation and keep us united," read Raila's Facebook post.

A number of them wondered why Raila had opted to recite what Dr Ruto had earlier on posted on his Facebook page.

Others expressed their surprise on how Raila, who rarely went to church in the past had suddenly become a preacher.

This happens hours after Dr Ruto wrote the same verse in his official Facebook page as he attended a church service in Meru.

Deputy president and the former prime minister are making inroads in different parts of the country to drum up support for their 2022 presidential bids. On Saturday, the former visited the latter's Migori turf.
